My Students

My students are wonderful, caring, strong leaders. In our school we work to support, inspire, and encourage all students to strive for academic success as they develop into productive members of society.

My students are an enthusiastic bunch who are hardworking, curious and have a lot of school spirit.

Although we are a small school my students exhibit great pride and passion for achievement. They are willing to give their all to make the school and greater community a better place!

My Project

Whiteboards are used by many teachers for many purposes. They can be helpful in gauging student understanding and can be a useful tool in creating meaningful conversations in the classroom.

With whiteboards students can share information graphically, mathematically, pictorially, and symbolically which increases the depth of peer-to-peer communication.

I hope to use the white boards to allow each lab group to simultaneously present data and concept understanding for observation and questioning. I hope to also use the boards to have students gallery walk to give peer feedback and simultaneously practice problems with new concepts.

As I move to provide more meaningful instruction aligned to the National Next Generation Science standards, the whiteboards will assist is creating a more student centered classroom where students can visualize each others ideas and engage in an exchange of group analysis of experimental data.
